I also have the same problem - I can't burn September's 1 sarge-i386-1.iso
DVD on DVD+RW media. I got an error message informing, that iso image
contains more sectors than are available on DVD+RW media.
I formated DVD+RW with dvd+rw-format utility (with -force or -blank
options, I don't remember now), but this doesn't help :(
Available sectors count on DVD+RW media and iso image sectors count is
bigger only in few hundreds (AFAIK sector's size is 2 KB), so I think we
should make iso image smaller only in few megabytes.
AFAIK command 'dvd+rw-mediainfo /dev/cdrom' displays DVD media info:

Size of sarge-i386-1.iso image is:
mantas@dubrava:~/downloads/iso$ ls -la sarge-i386-1.iso
-rw-r--r-- 1 mantas mantas 4702103552 2004-09-02 09:45 sarge-i386-1.iso
It seems difference between biggest possible iso image (4700372992) and
current sarge-i386-1.iso image is 1730560 bytes (1690 KB), so we should
make maximum iso image size about 2 megabytes smaller.
